KBSX Transmitter Power Outage

Nov 20, 2015

KBSX experienced a power outage at the transmitter site this morning that took us off air for approximately five minutes. Our engineers are working diligently to determine the exact cause for the outage. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience. 

Boise State Public Radio's McCall stations may experience an off-air outage lasting up to half an hour throughout the day. Our engineers are performing maintenance on each station's transmitter today.

We apologize for the inconvenience. 

If you're a listener in either Salmon or Challis, you might notice an improvement in the sound quality of Boise State Public Radio. Newly installed equipment has strengthened the signal path to Salmon, which improves overall quality on the Salmon transmitter and the Challis translator that receives its signal from Salmon.

Tune in to enjoy the better audio!

 

Boise State Public Radio's building power is undergoing maintenance Wednesday night, from 11:30 p.m. until 3 a.m. Thursday. All BSPR stations and streams will be taken off air for this procedure.

Feeds should be back on air by 4 a.m. Thursday for Morning Edition, provided there are no power issues after the electrical work.

Thank you for your patience and we apologize for this inconvenience. 

As a listener of Boise State Public Radio, you've likely noticed inconsistencies in our audio signal on KBSX. We recently upgraded to a new digital audio processor and that change has created the inconsistencies you're hearing. The Boise State Public Radio engineering staff worked to fix the issues over the weekend and continues to do so. The matter is their top priority.

As we continue to make adjustments, we appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconveniences. 

We'll continue to post updates as things progress.

Maintenance work in Salmon and Challis will take BSPR off air for the next thirty minutes. Regular coverage should resume by 4pm.

As a listener of Boise State Public Radio, you may have noticed some inconsistencies in our audio signal on air in the past day. We are in the process of configuring our digital audio processing, both to address ongoing audio level inconsistencies, as well as assessing the many input and output levels of each of our satellite sources, recording and playback devices.  We appreciate your patience as we we continue to make these adjustments. Our goal is to provide excellent radio broadcasts to our listeners, and we are working very hard to ensure the end product exceeds your expectations.
